Simulation of Contaminant Reactions and Movement (SCRAM) is a computer simulation designed to predict the movement of pesticides from agricultural lands. SCRAM is composed of deterministic submodels which describe the following physical processes: infiltration, percolation, evaporation, runoff, sediment loss, pesticide adsorption and desorption in the soil profile, pesticide microbial degradation in the soil profile, and pesticide volatilization. SCRAM predictions of these physical processes are compared to experimental data furnished by the Southeast Environmental Research Laboratory in cooperation with the Southern Piedmont Conservation Research Center. Simulated runoff for two small watersheds (less than 3 hectares) near Athens, Georgia, agrees reasonably well with experimental data. Sediment loss is not as accurately predicted. Predictions of pesticide loss in the runoff and on the sediment are in reasonable agreement with experimental data if allowance is made for the effects of inaccurately predicting sediment loss.
